Anxiety in men

We know that men of all ages suffer with anxiety. Some men are not aware of it and many men try to ignore it. Those who are aware of it feel trapped not knowing what to do and fear showing weakness or worse, vulnerability.

The behaviour maybe showing itself as OCD or perhaps a more generalised anxiety or GAD it may be caused a sudden unexpected change or a sharp increase in phobia’s.

What can they do?

The chances are if you suffer from anxiety or depression and you are under 35 you could reach out on social media. There are numerous groups offering understanding and support on social media but you have to be very comfortable in that environment.

What then for the older man, not brought up with all things public and still often with the very destructive lack of self care or awareness of his generation?

He must do something and do it fast. Talking, sharing, allowing verbal intimacy is actually the best he can do. Its imperative that he finds a place of trust and safety. Leaving it is not an option. The health risks are completely avoidable if you talk to a professional.
